Default Firewire cable to connect...

Okay... from a Digi002 to a new Mac mini.
What kind of firewire cable? I have a standard 6 - 6. That obviously didn't work. Then i bought a 6 - 4 because the connector on the mini looks like a 4 pin. Apparently it isn't.
What cable do I need?

The new Mac Mini has a FireWire 800 port.

You need a 800 to 400 cable.

Or go 800 to your external HDD and then 400 out of the drive to the 002.
